Same Thing. Different Recipe.

Much as I would love them to request raw veg and seeds, sometimes the small people want cake. And, specifically, last weekend they wanted brownies. So I of course had to oblige (nothing to do with me wanting to eat any, of course **coughs**). I don’t have a go-to brownie recipe in my head so I dug out my cookbooks–which are a rather eclectic selection I have to admit–and compared recipes.

Be Bold! (or just move things a little!)

Sometimes it’s absolutely the right time to do something big, new and bold. Other times it makes sense to just move things a little bit. But you do need to move – onwards, upwards, sideways, longways, anyways :)

Standing still might seem like a good idea if you’re having a wobble or a panic or just not sure about something, but actually it’s very rarely the best plan. If you stand still you can’t see what’s possible, you can’t tell if something is a good idea (or not) until you try it.

How do you do?

How do you do what you do?

This is a really important question to ask yourself as it will really help you with your marketing and get you noticed.

Don’t believe the Hype

2

The Hype often tells us ‘this is easy’ and this is ‘simple’ and that is very probably true for the person saying it.

I, for example, find it very easy to write copy, set up web pages and run webinars, etc. For some people (and I talk to them every day), even one of those things seems impossible :)

So don’t always believe the Hype ;)
